The Chester Borough Council condemned the old George house on Main Street in 1937, according to the Mendham-Chester Tribune. The building had been declared unfit for use in 1936. The building had been located between the Post Office and John Frageman’s barber shop.
In 1938, Postmaster Austin Thompson announced that all air mail leaving Chester would have a special cachet on it in honor of National Air Mail Week. Air mail would be taken to Basking Ridge and flown from Somerset Hills Airport to Newark Airport. Source: The Mendham-Chester Tribune
